Has building your first boat been intimidating? Want to go sailing on city lakes after work and be the envy of your friends? Prefer wines over chines? Come find out how easy it is to build your first boat -- in this case an Elegant Punt -- and be on the water in a few weeks with no prior experience. This talk will jettison proper technique, traditions and jargon in favor of GETTING YOUR BOAT DONE. This is all about tom foolery, adventure, and being on the water ASAP. Equal part lessons learned the hard way, instruction, and motivational talk; the aim is to have fun, build confidence, and get a basic understanding of how to make your first boat!

Andrew Dahlin has recently gotten into boat building and is smitten with it. He's passionate about exposing people to sailing and boat building as a way to counteract our increasingly digital world. He can be seen sailing around Anchorage lakes after work in his Bolger Nymph.
